Examples of Wrongful Death

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Driving is a part of our everyday lives, and wrongful death may occur as a result of another motorist on the road, the vehicle manufacturer, or authorities responsible for maintaining safe roads. More often than not, the unintended fatality is caused by the negligence and recklessness of a fellow driver.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians have a uniquely dangerous position in accidents because they are totally unprotected, unlike the motorist operating the vehicle. In most cases, the driver is clearly liable for striking a pedestrian. Pedestrians may be eligible for physical and mental anguish compensation, depending on the severity and permanency of injuries.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice involves the negligence of a healthcare professional when treating a patient. Malpractice lawsuits are especially emotional because the death is caused by someone you trusted to make things better. Possible negligent acts include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, failure to diagnose, prescription mistakes, poor aftercare, premature discharge, or surgical errors.

Defective Products

Consumer goods, both essential and nonessential, can result in a wrongful death. This may stem from the product being defective, malfunctioning, or producing complications during use. In any of these cases, the product doesn’t fulfill the goal of enhancing quality of life—a legal issue that falls under the responsibility of the manufacturer.

Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents refer to an occupational injury of any kind. This can include getting hurt on the job, on your way to/from job under some circumstances, and being fatally injured by things at a job, including machinery. With injuries at work, employees are usually entitled to worker's compensation benefits.

Nursing Home Neglect or Abuse

Nursing home neglect involves the abuse of the elderly, people with disabilities, and those residing in long-term care facilities. These people are harmed by caretakers in the environments set up to protect their welfare, which may include physical, emotional, sexual, or financial trauma, all of which are intentionally inflicted.

We’ll acquire all of the information needed to fully understand the situation. We win compensation for you through our proactive communication and assertive tactics, so you and your family may grieve peacefully.

What can I receive compensation for?

Following a wrongful death, you may receive compensation for both exact calculations and non-exact calculations. Exact calculations include things affecting you financially: medical bills of your loved one, lost familial income, and possession replacement. Non-exact calculations are things you cannot put an exact number on: pain, suffering, mental anguish, and loss of consortium.

Why do I need a lawyer?

Wrongful death litigation can be hard to navigate, especially in a time of mourning. Even in states with malpractice caps, we’ll fight to get you maximum compensation. An unfortunate truth is that juries are less likely to rule in your favor if your loved one is dead. We’ll help you navigate the best route for receiving justice.

How long will it take to resolve my case?

Wrongful deaths are convoluted cases, and there is no telling how long resolution will take. Each case is so incredibly unique, and deserves time and understanding no matter how much a fast settlement is being pushed on you.
